‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Adds Five More Including Matthew Modine

Principal photography has begun on Christopher Nolan’s much anticipated next chapter in his vision for Batman The Dark Knight Rises, but that doesn’t the mean the casting process is by any means done.

Variety is reporting that five more have been added to the roster of The Dark Knight Rises, one of whom is a well-known name that should be familiar to audiences: Matthew Modine (Full Metal Jacket, Transporter 2) has been tapped to play a character named ‘Nixon’. Details of the role and the size of it are still under wraps for the time being as is expected for a Nolan/Dark Knight film. .

Oscar nominee Tom Conti for 1983’s Reuben, Reuben adds some class to the cast and joining the vets is junior actress Joey King (star of the Beverly Cleary novel adaptation Ramona & Beezus). The extent of their involvement is also under wraps.

In addition, veteran actors/Apollo 13 vets  Brett Cullen (Skateland, Ghost Rider) and Chris Ellis (Transformers, Catch Me If You Can) have been hired to play a judge and a priest respectively.

Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures is expected to hit theaters July 20, 2012.
